Pep Ventosa takes and uses hundreds of pictures to create one masterpiece to give it a whole new visual experience. I am big fan of his Reconstructed Work in where big cities like New York, Barcelona, Paris and Amsterdam are captured in a fresh and stunning way. There is so much more on his site…take a look and decide which city will get on your wishlist…
Here I combined portraits and landscapes in Photoshop using blending modes.
I used my own photographs such as sand dunes and forest landscapes blended over black and white portraits, I then improved the images by rubbing out areas covering the face. I really enjoyed creating these images and hope to use something similar to this in my final piece.
Jelle Martens is a of young Belgian graphic artist, here he has used geometric triangle patterns combined with multiple photographs to form a series of collages.
Idris Khan uses in his work diverse cultural sources including literature, history, art, music and religion, he investigates memory, creativity and the layering of experience in his work. Idris does this by densely layering imagery to create abstract photographs.
Experiments are a collection of mostly quick low resolution concepts composed of found imagery. I really love these images because of the surreal magic in each image, by combining natural landscapes and portraits. Unlike artists like Stezaker, Matt uses digital techniques of Photoshop in place of traditional cut and paste creating hauntingly beautiful images.
Some people create images to make a statement. Others, like Matt Wisniewski, do it because it looks pretty. “It’s mostly just aesthetic,” explains the 21-year-old computer science student of his spectral photo collages. “Whatever looks nice, really.”
Art for art’s sake is no new conceit. But Wisniewski has created a particularly successful iteration by overlaying portraits with organic patterns—from flowers to jagged peaks to a Rorschach blot. He came to the combination through experimentation. “It just sort of clicked,” he says. “Natural elements tend to be a little simpler and fit together a bit more obviously with the portraits than urban elements.”
The process begins with images from Tumblr and other online portfolios. A few experimental overlays later, Wisniewski lights on something that catches his eye. “I decide that I want to go further on it and then clean that up.”

Here I copied David Hockney’s work with people, I took multiple images of my model in the same position but my camera moving around her to take photographs at many different angles. I then placed my close up images onto a large single portrait arranging them to appear as if you can see around the sides of the image.
I tried to recreate Pep Ventosa’s style, here I took multiple images walking around the same object such as a telephone box and a palm tree here, on Photoshop I placed each image on top of each other and change the opacity so that each image on top of the other is 5% less opacity then the one below it.
